120hz Monitors with Displayport as default connection

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I used to own a Samsung S27A950D 120hz monitor (well two of them actually) and they both came with a special dual DVI connector that enabled 120hz with the PC's.

I am picking up another 120hz monitor (Going back into gaming) and it looks like the only version that is left is the Samsung LS27A950DSL
which comes default with a displayport cable. It does have DVI as well but likely will not include the dual DVI connector.

The question is, will the Displayport cable support 120hz when connected to my PC?

I am planning either a pair of 680's or a single Titan (Still on the fence) but want to ensure there will be no issue with 120hz support.

The 680's will be the MSI Lightning which come standard with a displayport connection (as does the Titan)

Thanks

There is no difference between DP cables. Yes it will support 120hz. (even 1600p@120hz)
